Spring sports have begun! We want to give you some tips to avoiding injury this season.

1) Receive a sports physical: While these are often required, even if they are not, it is a good idea to receive a physical to screen for any possible issues or potential injury risks.

2) Warm Up: Do not jump right into a sport. Work up to it with moderate activity. Before a game or practice, make sure to warm up your muscles to prevent injury as well.

3) Drink plenty of fluids: Prevent injuries by staying hydrated. a dehydrated body is injury prone.

4) Maintain a healthy diet: A healthy diet is important. Always try to eat breakfast and avoid eating a few hours before practice or a game to prevent digestive issues.
